This year’s event also features a make-and-take project for children 12 and under taught by Baird Brothers craftsmen and Ident-A-Kid kits from the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Department. Local fire trucks will be on site and High Five the Clown will make custom balloons.

“The Red, White and True Festival is a chance for us to give back with a fun, family-friendly event. Every year we enjoy opening our facility to the community to show our appreciation for their continued support,” said Baird Brothers’ representative Steve Stack. “The best way to truly appreciate the craftmanship that goes into every piece of Baird Brothers’ fine hardwood is to see the process for yourself and with our mill tours and the chance to meet our craftsmen the community is able to do just that,” he said.
